"As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once & then twice, have nothing more to do with him." (Titus 3:10)

#yourewelcome
I reread this passage recently & was convicted by how much time, attention, & emotion I yield to people who have little interest in anything more than stirring up strife & gaining power thru conflict.
Sometimes the godly thing to do is to ignore & reject those who are clamouring for attention. But this takes spiritual maturity & willingness to establish boundaries, to say "No," & hold a hard line.

#Privilege means you’re given unearned advantages based on a social norm or value. #Race, #gender, #class, #disability, & #sexuality are all major social systems which value certain bodies & behaviors over others.
Fatphobia & slim/size privilege are produced by systems of gender, race & class. How? By the production of beauty norms & medical standards of health which are based on middle class whiteness & directed mostly violently at women.
Thought big booties are recently valued (notably most when they are not on the bodies of black women, especially fat black women), the bodies historically most celebrate were/are thin white women. This is an ideal that harms all women & encourages us to all hate our bodies.

I imagine that anyone that appears to be working for the Iranians would feel the same way.
I’m not sure if John Kerry has a nickname yet but if he doesn’t I think “Iran John” fits the bill perfectly!!! #yourewelcome
#IranJohn
Or Johnny Iran... there are so many good ones that fit him perfectly. Why don't you guys pick.

Which John Kerry's nickname do you prefer. LMK

45 Days Of @ElvisCostello: a twitter megathread in anticipation of the Oct 12 release date of LOOK NOW, the new LP by Elvis Costello & The Imposters

This is either a bright idea or a brilliant mistake, but this is only, this is only, this is only the beginning...
I did something similar to this 5 years ago, in anticipation of EC & @theroots' Wise Up Ghost LP, on tumblr.

(You can still find all those posts if you look, although a lot of the YouTube links etc are now dead ends. It was 40 Days Of EC then, so for 2018 I'm upping it to 45.)
Mostly I will be going chronologically from the early years right up to the present, but it feels right to start out with Costello's 2002 song, "45."
